With every new version, we work hard to make AutoCAD 360 a little closer to what each of you want it to be. We consider all of your feedback and feature requests—and several of the features noted in this post were born out of those requests. Here are some of the exciting new features and improvements we have added in our latest 2.0 version (all of which are included in the free version of the mobile app!):
AutoCAD 360 version 2.0 brings you a drawing and design tool that sets a new standard for usability on mobile devices—the Smart Pen! You no longer have to change tools constantly to bring your vision to life. From now on, you can use just one tool to draw lines, polylines, circles, rectangles and anything else your heart desires. The Smart Pen allows you to sketch freely without needing great artistic skills or a surgeon’s precision touch. In addition to recognizing the shapes you’re trying to draw, the Smart Pen will also let you free sketch. Turn the automatic snap feature on and off during your sketching to best suit your needs. Check out a demonstration in the video below.
We’ve also made improvements to our measuring tools. Now you can measure distances and areas in your drawing in just two taps. Choose the kind of measurement you want (distance or area) and simply double-tap the object you want to measure or specify the relevant points. You can also copy the measurements and easily paste them into a text remark, Design Feed comment, or a document.
Another exciting new measuring tool is one of the features you’ve all been waiting for (How do we know that? We saved each and every one of your requests. If we still used paper, we would need a bigger office!). So without further ado we give you the Dimensions tool! Use it whenever you want to add dimensions labels to your drawing. Just choose a line or polyline and the location of the dimensions.
And last but not least, you can now access your files in a host of third-party storage services, including DropBox, Box.com, Buzzsaw, Egnyte and any other file storage service using WebDAV—directly from your mobile device! Just open the sidebar, tap “Connect to” and select a service. Enter your credentials and you’re in! Files that have been uploaded will be available offline as well.
If you have any other needs or desires, we’re always looking to improve. Let us know what feature you think would make our app even better!
